Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wastelands 2 is riveting, and perfect for “on-the-go” fans of thought-provoking, masterfully crafted post-apocalyptic tales." -  Comics Online 

"As a whole this collection is excellent and I would recommend it to any fan of the genre or short fiction in general. It is refreshing to see an undead-free take on the genre in a market that has been saturated with zombie-related fiction." - Nerdology 101


PRAISE FOR WASTELANDS

“Everything that is best about the trope, from bleak, empty worlds to beacons of hope.” Booklist

“The best anthology of any kind I have read to date.” Grasping for the Wind

“A great collection that gets my highest recommendation.” Bookgasm

"Fantastic collections of end-of-the-world short fiction that fans of the genre will surely enjoy" - VG Blogger


This harrowing reprint anthology of 22 apocalyptic tales reflects the stresses of contemporary international politics […] All depict unsettling societal, physical and psychological adaptations their authors postulate as necessary for survival after the end of the world. […] the volume’s common denominator is hubris: that tragic human proclivity for placing oneself at the center of the universe, and each story uniquely traces the results. Some highlight human hope, even optimism [others] treat identity by exploring mutation. [Several] gauge the height of human striving, while others […] plumb the depths of human prejudice, jealousy and fear [and some] will break your heart.

—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

My favorite anthology of all time—packed with masterworks.

—Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble

Hopeful rather than despairing […] relevant to the uncertain times in which we live [the stories] display a full understanding of the worries and real problems that might eventually threaten civilization as we know it.

—Jeff VanderMeer, Realms of Fantasy

A first-rate anthology that quite convincingly represents the more recent SFnal view of the apocalypse.

—Locus

I can’t help but give this collection the highest recommendation. I think this will be a cornerstone for most reader’s shelves.

—SFF World

Editor Adams provides a bit of everything that is best about the trope, from bleak, empty worlds to beacons of hope in an otherwise awful situation.  […] A well-chosen selection of well-crafted stories, offering something to please nearly every post-apocalyptic palate.

—Booklist

A classic […] perfect for those moments when we want to take a trip to the end of the world.

—PC Gamer

Few books have had the impact on me that Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse did. […] A great collection that gets my highest recommendation.

—Bookgasm

Wastelands is an exceptional anthology. In scope and vision it can only be compared to Harlan Ellison’s Dangerous Visions. […] I highly recommend this anthology for anyone who enjoys reading anything. […] Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse is the best anthology of any kind I have read to date.

—Grasping for the Wind

Wastelands is a fine anthology: an educational introduction to the subgenre and a well-chosen jog of the memory for the more experienced connoisseur of calamity.

—SF Site

A wide-variety of post-apocalyptic scenarios from some of the field’s most prolific authors […] a must-have volume for fans of the this subgenre of science fiction.

—Stainless Steel Droppings

A great selection of end-of-the-world stories.

—SF Signal
